I wish Fermor would walk across every country on earth, and then come to a boozy dinner party and tell me about it for hours. A great story.

Beautifully narrated and marvelously written. Many things are still actual in Romania and Hungary. Loved it

Read this after being given its companion book by a friend Dr Patrick Smith who diagnosed my illness and taught me to relax and rest God rest his wonderful soul Thank you Patrick. Thank you for the reading too. Bless you.
Compelling listening. Best travel books ever! His description of people and places is truly unique.

I stopped listening halfway through this book as I was finding the dense exposition of European history too much to take in. However, when I returned to the book several months later I was enthused and I enjoyed the rest of it, history and all.
One has to accept that this is a book about history rather than a book about walking. Also, it is a book (unapologetically) by a posh Pom with an intense interest in people, language and Europe.
It works... if you let it.
